The 2012 NYE run in Portland (12/30-12/31) add to the list of terrific moe. performances at The State Theater. Whereas last years 12/30 show was better than 12/31 (imo), THIS YEARS 12/31 SHOW WAS STRAIGHT HEAT!!!!! In fact, this show is in my top five ever.
Everything about this show was awesome.
Favorite parts were:
-- Chromatic > Faker > (second half of) Brent Black
-- Deep This Time is becoming one of my new favorites; the segue out of it is dynamite.
-- Yode > potato song > Yode > CIA > STF (PS: the animated clock and lights were awesome during this part of the show)
-- Long Island Girls Rule killed it. Since they didnt repeat any songs over the four night run (12/28-12/31), McBain/George were unavailable, and thus LIGR occupied the "disco" niche for the evening. Very very good.
-- Head > Time Ed > Head ... just listen.
-- note that Reaper was a lot of fun (jim at center stage on bass, and rob playing enthusiastic cowbell the whole time ala Will Farrell)...its definitely not their best sounding version :)
Great sound Flarcus, thanks again for your recordings!!!

Culmination of the best run I've seen moe. do
This might possibly be the best moe. show I've ever seen. the play was so good and the vibe was so good. plus rob flubbing lyrics and laughing makes every show amazing.
